Happy Birthday Gabo

Gabriel José García Márquez was born on March 6, 1928 in Aracataca, Colombia. He won the 1982 Nobel Price for literature with after gaining notoriety with his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, which is actually in Oprah’s book club.

Gabo is a great writer and I am proud that we were born in the same country. I put him in the same category with Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. If you ever have a chance pick up one of his books. Find out what magic realism is all about.

  3. Hmmm, el Nobel no se gana por un (1) libro. Se gana por el conjunto completo de la obra del autor.

  4. Ovidio notes that you win for a Noble prize not just for one book but for your whole collection of work. So I am correcting the entry.
